Jack Up The 80s

11-13 August 2017

This superb family friendly festival is now in its fifth year and continues to go from strength to strength. On the Island there’s a real passion for reliving the good times of Frankie Says and Choose Life t-shirts, florescent headbands, leg warmers, legendary blockbuster movies and of course fantastic music! The event will be at its new easy-to-get-to location Smallbrook Stadium in Ryde. Also new for Jack Up The 80s vol5 – a Friday night opening party hosted by Wave 105’s Steve Power and Number One Abba tribute band Abba Chique. Shuttle buses will be provided to transport Fast Cat foot passengers from Ryde Esplanade directly to the venue. Kids aged 12 and under go FREE!

Artists confirmed so far include Aussie heart-throb Jason Donovan, Soul sensation Alexander O’Neal, super talented singer songwriter Nik Kershaw as well as 1981 Eurovision winners Bucks Fizz, From The Jam and The Real Thing with yet more names still to be announced.
